This morning, Ganns and I passed by the Mabuhay Rotonda, formerly Welcome Rotonda, in Quezon City. Since it was a "Rotonda" (in English, a circular road), we were hoping to use it to get to E. Rodriguez. What a surprise for us to discover that the city government or the MMDA had permanently blocked off the Rotonda. It seems ironic that the landmark is called "Mabuhay Rotonda" when there is no more Rotonda. The city should probably consider renaming the landmark to Mabuhay Monument.
